Download this ZIP file: http://dslstats.me.uk/files/dslstats32W-6.5.zip
Everything in the ZIP file is in a directory “dslstats32W-6.5”.
However when I extract using right click “Extract Here” the name of the directory created is “2W-6.5” !
I am running PA 22.00.09 on Windows 11. I have seen the same happen with some other kinds of archive too.
If I compress a folder to a .pa using right click, Compress to folder.pa and use the new Windows 11 menu then the Options, Configuration, Miscellaneous, Use normal relative path setting is always enabled.
But I like this option disabled so I have to use the old style menu in order to get PA to compress a folder in the way I wish.
Just tried using the Modern (Windows 10) Icon set and seeing a few missing icons in both PowerArchiver Burner and PowerArchiver Encryption screens . They are all there in the Minimalistik icon set and the only difference I can see is the former is blue and the latter grey. In version 22.00.9
there were some security issues fixed in 7zip:
As it seems, that PowerArchiver and PACL use the 7zip libraries, could you please update them to the latest version?
I noticed that the version of ZPAQ used is older than the latest released 7.15 https://mattmahoney.net/dc/zpaq.html also there seems to be a newer fork that adds several features https://github.com/fcorbelli/zpaqfranz
It would be useful to implement this latest version (it also maintains the same syntax and behavior as the latest official release if used the -715 flag) and add when opening a zpaq file a choice of the version of the files to show (e.g. as dummy folders represented the various versions present). Since any previous changes are stored with this format, it is possible to extract a snapshot of a certain date/version.
If I open a password-protected zipper file (created with WinRAR but I think that’s irrelevant), open it with PowerArchiver and run “Remove Encryption” on the same file, then reopen it and add a password with “Encrypt Archive,” the resulting archive will be protected with the old ZipCrypto algorithm and not AES as indicated.
(this can be verified, for example, by trying to open the archive files with Windows Explorer, which does not support the AES algorithm)
PA 21.00.18 running on Windows 7 64 bit.
I made a big .PA file and thought I’d check it was made correctly with Menu / Actions / Test.
a) PA always issues a UAC prompt to do this!
b) PA always says there are many errors in PA files.
BackUp Config Window Always Opens
 When ever I run a backup script from within PA (backup pane), the configuration window always opens.
 A couple of the backup buttons should be changed. Almost all of them are a variation of a floppy disk. The differences for some are very subtle and make it hard to quickly identify which button does what.
I have to rely on tooltips. So I propose changing the Run and Schedule icons as shown in the screenshot.
you mean backup wizard shows? or?
Yeah the backup wizard/config. I attached a screenshot. And if you choose the option under alerts to show the “Backup done when finished” then you end up with two dialog windows to close.
well, thats what is supposed to happen :)
Can we add an option to supress the window from popping up? If its made optional, Im sure many users would like to run a backup without getting dialogs on-screen.
Also, if its an option, users who want/prefer it can have it.
they are shown only for people who run pbs from PA. If you schedule it or run it from Windows, it is not shown then.
so we will see, it is something to think about.
they are shown only for people who run pbs from PA.
lol… Im one of those people :D I love the backup pane and until its introduction, I’ve never used PBS. I never cared for running and managing PBS in Windows Explorer.
I think the backup pane is one of the best new features.
